According to archeological studies, there are a number of cemeteries in the county of Harsin, which on their surface there are bas reliefs and carved stones from the historical period that indicate the importance of some cemeteries in the region in terms of stone carvings.The frequency of access to the limestone of the mountains in the area, such as the hillside of Bisotun Mountain, it has led us to encounter bas relief stone and carved stones in the Sassanian period, which it can be found in stone buildings, bridges and even the grave stones of some cemeteries in the area can be seen.Therefore, there are shaved stones with carved signs on some of the grave stones of the cemeteries, that by studying them carefully, can be clarified some archeological issues and problems about the shaved stone and stone motifs. there are shaved stone on the surface of Chehr, Qeysavand, Azizabad and Shams Abad cemeteries in the west of Harsin county and Imamzadeh Mehdi in Harsin that have not been studied. In this article, using the library-field research method, the following questions were asked: 1- What are the cut stone obtained from the cemeteries of Harsin region? 2- What can the stone finds of these cemeteries have to do with Sassanid cut stones in places such as the foothills of Bisotun Mountain or other Sassanid structures in the region? Archaeological studies have shown that on some of these cemeteries, special gravestones such as shaved stones in various forms with the signature of carvings, trunks of stone columns along with roof eaves belonging to the Sassanid period and stone columns is obtained. These limestone finds have a cutting style and raw material similar to the Sassanid structures of the region.Therefore, their conversion to the grave stone was a secondary use of the later Islamic period.
